Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by unxpected NO Assembly Instructions!! there is a parts diagram that is very low resolution looks like it was scanned in the 1970s.
There is a wire next to the engine start switch that looks like it goes into another with 2 holes. nothing mentions this ugly wiring scheme. There was oil in the engine that leaked everywhere from the shipment.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Craton Works fine once you get it started!
I think the mixer is a good solution for small project work, once you get it started. The initial start out of the box was difficult, but subsequent starts were okay...as long as the foam air filter is not clogged with excess engine oil. The filter should be checked occasionally along with checking the oil, Be careful not to add too much oil which will overflow out of the engine and through the air filter onto the ground. Also, the oil dipstick can be misleading, as the "ideal" level or amount of oil should register at the "bottom" or tip of the dipstick...not the top. One last thing...it's important to get a good mix and then empty into the work area, as cement will begin to leak out of the drum through the holes...however, when mixed properly, you can make good batches and depending on the size of the cement bags, only one or two bags should be mixed at a time.

The 5 cu. ft. Gas Powered Commercial Duty Cement & Concrete Mixer CMG5 is a wonderful machine. I thought I could do a job around the house without it, but soon found it would be next to impossible or take me forever to complete. I love the mixer. It is easy to start, mixes well, and is easy to clean. I definitely recommend it to anyone needing to do concrete projects. And, in the long run, using it is less costly than hiring a cement truck. Thank you.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rick99991 Great little mixer
Bought this mixer in June. Mixed about 8 yards of concrete gravel and cement through it. No problems so far. Been making flag stone in molds and retaining wall brick in molds too. Perfect size for this. The most it will hold is 22 shovels full of gravel and you have to lean it back so the mix doesn't spill out. Shipping was fast also.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MaintPro Seem legit however
Seems legit however it came in a box and had to be put togther. While I was competent to handle this task, there were NO instructions about what went where....The detail should state that it needs to be put together with common hand tools.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by hargreat Product will do with modifications.
I would have preferred that I was informed that this product was NOT made in the USA. I was also not informed that this product needs a base for the dump process to function properly. The set up instructions were the worst I have ever seen. The product is functional but I am not happy.

I was debating on several mixers of what to get. After reading the reviews and looking at some photos posted on here of projects people had used the mixer for I decided to go with it. It has done a great job! I poured a basketball court and also used this mixer in building a cinderblock wall around the house! When I have time again I will do a couple sidewalks.
